Welcome to the Week 7 Buy Low Report!

    I'm tight on roster spots. Standard league, 6PT TDs for QBs:

    Give: Watson, McCaffrey
    Receive: Brees, Blount

    I need a QB to fill for Watson's bye week, and the other owner has Cousins to slot in this week. So I view this as McCaffrey for Blount in standard scoring. I'm banking on Watson slowing down, and Brees being Brees.

    I pulled the trigger. I could end up regretting it. It was fun owning the exciting splash QB that is Watson. But in the end, Watson's playoff schedule is pretty bad with JAC and PIT. Brees' is substantially softer, and I'm fairly confident I'll make playoffs at 5-1 with my roster.

    WR: Fitz, Demaryius, Diggs, Fuller, Parker, Funchess
    RB: Bell, Gurley, Blount, McKinnon, D. Henry
    TE: Gronk, Henry

    Should we still be buying low on Amari?

  4. I'll write up a more in depth response tomorrow, but my short answer remains yes. Oakland face a neutral schedule going forward, but have a fantastic playoff one. Not certain as to what you should give up, but it's certainly worth kicking the tires on.

    @hrr5010: I've been trying to sell TY Hilton for some time now, but his value is at an all-time low after MNF. Buy low report shows IND with the worst schedule for WR ROS; murderer's row of pass defense (JAC-2x, PIT, HOU, DEN, CIN) and now we're hearing rumblings that Luck will sit ROS as well. Is Hilton too much to give up for a gamble trade on Cooper?

    Would you trade someone like Snead? His value isn't quite established with all of this talk about easing him in. And I feel his ceiling is capped more-so than Cooper's potential.
